  • Provenance
    A La Vieille Cité, Paris, 15 June, 1979
    Acquired from above by the present owner

    A La Vieille Cité was a famous gallery in Paris established by Mikhail Djanchieff, officer of the Russian Imperial Army who came to Paris in 1914 and in few years later opened a small antiques shop. With influx of Russian aristocrats and White Army officers flooding Paris after the Russian Civil War Mikhail Djanchieff's establishment became not only a place to sell priced possession but functioned as an émigré salon connecting displaced and impoverished Russian royalty, aristocrats, intellectual luminaries, writers and artists. By 1952 the shop became a larger gallery on Rue Saint-Honoré specializing in Russian fine and decorative arts. Mikhail Djanchieff was closely connected with Russian artists and often sold their works through his gallery. His son, Alexander, took over the business in 1977, and it was through connection with Alexander that the collector acquired the presented lot in Paris in 1979.
